A wonderful generic guide book (softcover). Lavishly photographed with many excellent photos of breeds from all over the world. Covers many breeds, disciplines, tack, care and grooming. Rather poor coverage (as in hardly at all) of American western events (cutting, roping, reining, western pleasure/trail classes), equipment and tack - but there are other books that cover these subjects better and in depth. I am glad to see British horse books now correctly referring to the American Paint breed as "Paint Horse" and not "pinto".
Unlike the "Ultimate Horse Book" (in which text is mostly complimentary to the photo and limited in facts), each page for breed profile is choc full of facts, breed description info, and history.
Editors of generic all-encompassing breed books (not just horses, but dogs, cats, etc) are notorious for gleaning information from OTHER breed books, rather than checking facts, or checking with the orginal breed registry first. This book however, looks like they've got the facts (and sources) straight.
This book is an excellent all-encompassing guide for the horselover.

If, like me, you can ride but want to improve your technical knowledge this is a great book. It gives really useful information on breeds and Horse Care. I have found it a great read and constantly refer to it. Would highly recommend.

The book is very detailed and factual when it comes to the history and conformation of the horse.
However it doesn't say what the horse is primarily used for i.e Shires - Farming and Quarter Horse - Leisure Riding.
While some may already know, I wanted to know which horse was suited to what category like working, racing, showing and leisurely riding
Overall though it's a good book.

Love it. A tiny bit worn & used but that's to be expected & as it was stated as "Good" I knew it wouldn't be exactly new.
